Celebrate the 5th annual Abundance Fruit Day with Abundance London

Join Abundance London on 4 October at St. Michael’s and All Angels Church in Chiswick for Abundance Fruit Day, the group’s annual celebration (its 5th) of apples, pears, quince and other fruit collected from the streets and gardens of West London. Abundance says the 2015 harvest is apparently the best in 30 years.

Come along and buy some fruit and enjoy fresh apple juice – made on the group’s huge apple press – as well as artisan jams and preserves, and kids’ fruity crafts, courtesy of St Michael’s and All Angels.

You can stock up on fruit bushes and vines, and buy local honey from Mel the Bee. Also on offer will be top-quality Cultivate London herbs and plants, traditional games with a twist, like apple bobbing, longest apple peel competition, smoothie pedal bike and William Tell slack-lining (tightrope with apple on head).

This year Abundance is introducing Sipsmiths tipples (it has been supplying its local distillery with delicious natural infusions such as mulberries), and Chiswick’s Cabin restaurant is preparing a special local lunch. Hot drinks will also be available.

Students at the Hogarth School have been picking fruit for a month and they will showcase their cakes, crumbles and toffee apples.

See you there!
